Album Description
Available in:
Night on Bröcken is the first studio album by progressive metal band Fates Warning, released in September 1984 through Metal Blade Records.
The title of the album is apparently a reference to the Brocken, a mountain in Saxony-Anhalt, Germany, which is traditionally associated with witches (Walpurgis Night), most famously in Johann Wolfgang von Goethe's Faust (1806–1831). The reference becomes apparent on two original album covers that "were scrapped prior to major distribution". The spelling is a typical example of a "metal umlaut".

Album Review
A very humble beginning for this excellent progressive band. Only a couple years removed from high school, they were strictly a metal band at this point. "Damnation" is the only song that has remained in their catalog from this session. Metal fans will find this too close to Iron Maiden, and progressive fans should skip this altogether. Early recordings such as this one are the reason their name conjures up the image of a metal band.
